I have just joined a Glass container manufacturer for Food, Beverage and Pharmacy industries. The company is applying FSSC 22000 for 3 years. I am reviewing some documents to prepare for the recertification some time next September. I saw in the Product description sheet which does not include the shelf life of product. Undestanding that some of product will be returnable container from the market after usage, so it is difficult to define the proper limit shelf life for our product. However, I still concern how we can well explain to the auditor if they ask about the intended shelf life since it is required in clause 22.214.171.124 of ISO 22000.
Thanks a lot and lood forwards to your advise.
